Default KZ ZS6 IEM Modified

Tipped off by Mr. L at the other place, I got myself a pair of KZ ZS6,
and followed his mod to the last word :

1. Rewaire the two balanced armature in series.
2. Replace the 0402 cap with Panasonic ECPU (I used 470n instead of 680n).
3. Remove the 0402 resistor and rewire with a 7.5R Beysclag MELF.

DIYHiFi.org • View topic - Affordable "High End" IEM with excellent SQ after small mods

Quite fiddly to do, so great soldering skill with SMD required.
You have been warned.
But result is real great sound for very little money.
Highly recommeded.

Cable I used :

Source : Laptop or Pono Player

Amp : XEN ZGF Portable
XEN ZGF Portable Headphone Amplifier

Have fun,

Holy cow! I would have utterly destroyed those iems with my combined atrocious soldering skills; poor eye sight; and hand tremors! Impressed. Enjoy.
